, governor of our state, tennessee, during the eight years, the obama administration would have been well served to pay attention to him because he was forced with the situation where he had to balance a budget. and the health care costs were eating up his budget. he had to cut the rolls. let me tell you that's how the governor elected to take care of this after they cut the providers so there weren't any providing, he then had to cut the rolls from the tenncare program. that was very painful and hard to do. i would certainly warn governors out there when you massively expand these rolls, politically, that was very difficult for the legislature and our democratic governor. my hats are off to him for the decisions had he to make. those were not easy for him to make. you are absolutely right. the governors are really the thought processes and places, experiments in local government, state governments that you can actually do something and see whether it works. instead of this massive, mess that we have. dr. burgess, i'm going to refer people, i just got a schematic of it yesterday, of a 21-
